I am planing my 1st elk hunt in wy I have 4 points and was looking for a good unit to get my 1st kill dosnt have to be a trophy for the 1st one. Just looking to find a good number of elk with descent public acess.
Take a look at the various units in the Big Horn Mountains in northcentral Wyoming. It's almost all National Forest with no problems for public access and there are plenty of elk throughout most of the units.
When placing a trail camera don't just look for a well used trail. What you want to do is look for a freshly used trail off by itself that goes from a north facing ridge, thick forest, brushy knob or some other similar bedding area to a food source. Don't forget water sources. Especially in the summer months the deer need water so look for a good trail going down too a creek surrounded by thick cover and place the camera 100 yards up from the water source.
Scent control is very important...
